, as house speaker john boehner earlier promised. instead, it would force congress to pass a budget or go without being paid. the government could reach the current debt ceiling by mid-february. ray nagin, the mayor of new orleans during hurricane katrina, has been indicted on charges for corruption. a federal grand jury accused him today of bribery, wire fraud, and money laundering while in office. nagin was the city's mayor from 2002 until 2010. two former new orleans officials and two businessmen have already pleaded guilty in the case. u.s. attorney general eric holder today defended president obama's moves to curb gun violence. the president signed 23 executive orders this week, calling for such things as more research into gun violence. today, in washington, holder told the u.s. conference of mayors that there's no question the orders are legal. >> now let me be very clear. let me be very clear. not one of these executive orders contrary to what a few have said impinges upon anyone's second amendment rights or are inconsistent with the historical use of executive power. >> sreenivas

to the president, out right hostile. john boehner said they'll take up these measures one by one. the senate is going to go in a piecemeal fashion. what interests me is the senate on the gun and on the second term agenda. harry reid said about 10 of the 23 democrats may have a real problem with this gun control agenda. maybe the number's a little bit shorter than that. but you're talking about democrats in states likele north carolina, arkansas, alaska, colorado, who will have trouble supporting the president on a whole host of these issues. it's one thing for the president to demonize the republicans and he's doing that and he's taking on a much more confrontational approach. but what happens when moderate democrats where they have to rely on some republican leaning type voters balk at the president's proposals? that changes the politics very quickly for him. gwen: but i'm curious where americans are. one of the things that i saw in his proposal is that the center for disease control should not be banned by investigating gun violence. who knew that they were? >> i don't think anybody did. b

with it to the new speaker. god bless you, speaker boehner. >> narrator: speaker john boehner had 87 new republican lawmakers, many of them deeply conservative. >> these were not people who spent 25 years in politics. in fact, that was a big strike against you. they were elected not to sell out the way so many politicians had done, that they were elected to speak truth to power. >> they'd spent the last two years running around, particularly a lot of these new congressmen in their districts, saying absolutely horrible things about the president-- his ability to lead, his ideology, his integrity, his birth certificate. these are not easy people to deal with. this is a very difficult, ideological caucus, with a very strong sense of self-righteousness and great vitriol and animosity for the president. >> narrator: for the president, it was a whole new game. >> i think he understood that the glory days were over, that the moment of celebration of barack obama was passed and he was heading into a much tougher, more trenchant period of his presidency when everything was going to be difficult, when everyt

us on the brink in the immediate future. >> john boehner has been tweeting out a picture that i think is interesting, and writing among other things, will senate democrats ever pass a budget. in the four years since senate democrats passed a budget, you could make 179 round trips to the moon. at the same time, chuck schumer says the senate is going to pass a budget so andy, are the democrats going to call the republicans' bluff? >> well, the question that i want to know and what will be playing out this week is whether john boehner's plan, this is a gamble for house speaker john boehner. there are members of the republican caucus in the house who don't want to raise the debt ceiling at all and don't even think a three-month extension of the debt ceiling as a ploy to put the political pressure on the senate democrats to pass a budget, they may not even vote for this. so he has his work cut out for him to make sure that his caucus or at least the vast majority of it is on board for this. and for the senate democrats, if this three-month extension passes, it does move the spotlight, it d

is john boehner. he was last seen in washington when he was re-elected speaker of the house. there are reports he and the house gop are at an annual retreat in williamsburg, yet conservatives like hugh hewitt are calling him a milk carton republican because he's gone missing on several very important debates. do you know where he is? >> you know, i have not personally seen this man, john boehner, but i have heard of him. i know who he is vaguely. i think he's the guy that had the most miserable, unpleasant speakership in the history of the republic, and it was because he had these conservative freshmen who came in all excited to undo the government, and they didn't understand that as speaker his job is to not undo the government. so he's had this problem where he can't please conservatives like hugh hewitt because they want him to champion real conservative principles but he can't get re-elected in his district, and republicans can't win on a national level if they champion those same values. i think right now boehner has chosen to just go quiet and sort of back away from th
between first lady michelle obama and john boehner. let's roll the tape. this is video from the post inaugural address luncheon and the first family seated next to the speaker of the house john boehner and at one point boehner is seen trying to capture the attention of the first lady and causing her to roll her eyes at her husband's rival and the still frame wondering what in the world did john boehner say to provoke a reaction and the expert lip-reader said he had the answer to that question. according to larry winnig, asked the president if he had a chance to have a cigarette and the president was laughing and he said somebody won't let you do it it referring to the first lady and that's when her reaction was on tape and the speaker denies the accuracy of the lip-reader's claims and here at fox we report and you get to decide and that's all the time we have this evening, as always thanks for being with us, let not your heart not be troubled and greta is here. >> greta: tonight, well, it got nasty, the battle over benghazi still raging. >> we were misled that there were supposedly p
republicans are making it clear they see that as a liberal agenda. speaker john boehner, other house republican leaders are about to hold a news conference. you're looking at live pictures from up there. our chief national correspondent john king is here. are the gloves off? >> you can certainly say yes or you might even say that the gloves are still on in the sense that republicans are looking to see what signals the president would send as he begins the second term. if you ask john boehner or mitch mcconnell, they believe the size of government, debt and deficit is is the biggest issues. and if you listen to the speech yesterday, he made only passing references to that. talk of immigration reform, many republicans including the speaker want to work with the president on that but if he talks a lot publicly, it puts pressure on the conservative base which any legal status is amnesty. the president also talking about gun control and gun rights, just talked to tom fuentes, it stretches the political coalition. the things that the president highlighted and spend more time on his inaugur
of stuff that people can come after you with. kind of the backdrop here is that house speaker john boehner has had some hiccups or headaches lately. it started late last year when house republicans struggled over how to deal with the george w. bush tax cuts. the house wanted them all extended for everybody. democrats are never on board. president obama was never going to be on board with the idea. so john boehner struggled in that situation, even coming up with an alternative plan for extending tax breaks for anyone making less than $1 million a year. he had to pull from the courthouse. so that was. a was. the next day, he also -- not the next day. excuse me, on january 1, they came back and finally agreed to raise tax rates for those incomes of people making $400,000 a year. that was a tough bill and proposal for him to put forward to, just because taxes went up at the end of the day. the next day he came back and decided to not have a vote on the sandy relief package. that made house lawmakers angry in the northeast. governor chris christie of new jersey also had some tough words for him
and ron reagan. it's funny it's so frickin true. >>> john boehner says the president wants to annihilate the gop. maybe if republicans weren't in a perpetual war with african-americans, latinos, women, and young people politically at least they wouldn't to worry about being annihilated. >>> also the pentagon officially lifted the ban on women in combat today. in reality women have already been in combat for some time, certainly exposed to enemy fire as tammy duckworth can attest to. >>> everyone agrees now is the best time in two decades to push for gun safety laws. today senator dianne feinstein introduced an assault weapons ban. i think we're going to do background checks. >>> and paul broun, who last year called evolution lies straight from the pit of hell, is back at it. he says president obama is upholding, wait for this, the soviet constitution. boy, he's up to date. >>> and this is "hardball," the place for politics.

john boehner after the house passed a bill making the debt ceiling disappear until may 18th, without cutting any federal spending. the stupidly named and conceived "no budget, no pay act" passed with a vote. 33 republicans voted against the bill, 199 voted for it. 86 democrats voted for the bill, 111 democrats voted against it. not only will the no budget, no pay act suspend the debt ceiling for about three months, it also requires the house and senate to pass budget resolutions by april 15th, and if they don't, representatives and senators will not get paid, which is of course, wildly unconstitutional. the 27th amendment prohibits congress from modifying their own paychecks in any way. they can vote to change the pay for future congress only, but republicans passing an unconstitutional bill, while at the same time relieving the pressure on the debt ceiling was welcomed by some democrats as republicans moving from out-right crazy to half-crazy. >> i'm not sure what happened at the house republican retreat last week, but it sure had a mellowing effect on their members. maybe there wer

is demeaning in the way he deals with house speaker john boehner. hold on, says columnist rockman. we expect too much of obama he says because in the united states, we subscribe to the quote, unquote myth of the imperial presidency. other transformational democratic presidents such as fdr and lbj, rockman says, have substantial democratic majorities in both the senate and in the house to enact their landmark legislation. obama in contrast has had to work with a narrow democratic majority in the senate and with an opposition party, the republicans in control of the house for the two years since january 2011. well, what about ronald reagan? president of the united states two successful four-year terms. on the domestic front, he enacted a major economic recovery package followed by an overhaul of social security. and in his second term, reagan gained a major tax reform. on the defense front, republican president reagan again with the help of the rity presided over a major increase in the defense budget, congress presided over a major increase in the defense budget, the defe including straby mil

majority are. you mention this issue about john boehner having brought up two bills so far this month. the fiscal cliff and the sandy relief bill without a majority of his majority behind it. if he brought up a vote on this issue, would his speakership be at risk? >> yes. it probably would be. and then, of course, there is a debt ceiling vote. now you hear a lot of republicans making noises about backing down from the debt ceiling fight. it is interesting by the way, i know we're not here to talk about that. it is interesting how the conventional wisdom has shifted on that. >> jennifer: quickly too. >> so quickly. just another sign of the shifting sands. it all hinges on how public opinion turns. and you know, is the president going to go out on the stump? is he going to go out and barnstorm the country for his proposals? how much political capital is he going to put into it? if he really builds up public support for the proposals and public support grows and if they feel pressure, he'll bring a vote. >> >> jennifer: just to take you back to that -- not the fiscal cliff, the debt ceil
